My wife and I travel several times a year and this by far was one of the top locations overall. Everything from location to lodgings and staff was extraordinary. The villas were large with plenty of amenities and well maintained. The beach was like your own piece of paradise.

I really don't want to write a review of Cooks Bay Villas so that no-one ever discovers this paradise. Stayed here three years ago and fell in love with the island and these villas. No disappointment second time round when we stayed. Everything just perfect. Shine, Tara, and Lea are the ideal hosts and looked after us so well. The... More

Accommodation the ultimate. Villas beautifully built, equipped, private and very comfortable. With seven young grandchildren there was plenty to do with snorkels, kayaks, pool, sea and coconuts to break open. Shine and Tara magnificant hosts.

Super villas...we absolutely loved our stay here...the villas sit directly on the beach with a lovely little patio area in front of your own hammock and kayaks. The other bonus here was the private jacuzzi and the bbq area...we were pretty much the only ones staying here so it really was super private. There are a number of places to... More

My husband daughter and myself stayed here March 16th for 7 nights on two separate occasions so we stayed in Villa 3 and then Villa 4. It is located on the south coast a short 3-5 minute walk to Wigmores grocery store. There are 5 free standing beach front villas set on a slight angle facing the water so you... More

Just came back from our 4th visit in 18 months. The two bedroom units still look new, we were in Villa 5 and all five villas have the same ocean view and are positioned so that you cannot see the villa beside you. Very private. Snorkelling gear, reef shoes, Kayaks are all provided for the guests and are in great... More

We were a group of 8 Ladies from Australia over for a 50th Birthday - WOW just amazing, we just fell in love with the place. We had 2 villas and they were so spacious we could all be together during the day and not feel cramped. The location and water is glorious. Tara and Shine and staff are so... More

We spent a wonderful week over Christmas 2014 at the Cooks Bay Villas and it was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful Villas with everything you could want and Shine and the staff were so helpful and gracious. We even received a beautiful Christmas Hamper on Christmas morning! Yummy fruit platter delivered every morning as well. Kayaks and scuba gear supplied and has... More
